Thank You Union Elementary School!

A few weeks ago Sarah (my author) visited the Union Elementary School in Montpelier Vt. Today there was big treat in the mail box-- Fan Mail!! They were all wonderful, here are just a few:

Union Elementary School has many wonderful artists!

There were even some pictures of MOI!

I've often thought of dying my quills blue, just for fun.

After seeing this, I think I may paint my house purple.

Someone even drew a picture of that annoying squirrel.

Thank you everyone-- To see more cards,
head on over to Sarah's blog!

Cream Puffs

1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 425°.

In a large pot, bring water and butter to a boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms
a ball. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl and cool. Beat in eggs one at a time. Drop by tablespoons full onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Poke a small hole in each puff to prevent them from collapsing. Cool. The cream puffs can be filled with pastry cream, vanilla or chocolate pudding, or my favorite, whipped cream. To fill either use a pastry bag or split the puff in half and spoon filling into the shell. If you would like, you may top them with chocolate icing.
